It is not often that you get to actually meet and chat with people you admire and then find them worthy of the pedestal you have put them on. I had this happen on Thursday when I met Topher Delaney at the Architectural Digest show in NYC. Topher’s exhibit for the show was hand’s down the most interesting thing there. She was showing her Braille structures. They are beautiful pieces for the garden or an interior that place rocks in braille patterns to convey words. I loved the little rocks and immediately thought it would be excellent for a yogic practice place (a wall of little drishdis) but my favorite – for symbolic purposes was the piece that had big rocks and depicted the lyrics to Willie Nelson – Will the Circle be Unbroken. One of my all time favorite songs.
I felt I was in the presence of a wise woman and I look forward to staying in touch, working with her and continuing to admire her designs and imagination.
